    No vowels. Totally disgusted.

    If they used castle instead of knight, there could be more capitals

    WELL – It’s not printers type, so that’s ok. However, they’re using an ornaments typecase, which is incredibly useful, but I’ll let it slide.

    for starters, the pieces are right-reading. then, the fitted squares don’t allow you to do the fun diagonal slidey thing that bishops do. and I think there should be better design differentiation between k for knight and K for King.

    I think the small ‘k’ works well for knights because they’re just wannabe Kings anyway!

    Well, they should have used N for knight. That’s what it is in chess notation, to differentiate between the Knight and King.

    In brazilian portuguese the “Knight” is the “Tower”. =)
